Applications are now being accepted for basic cadets for the 2014 Ohio Wing Encampment. This year’s encampment will be held at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio with billeting at Wright State University. The course dates are Sunday 06 July 2014 through Saturday 12 July 2014. The cost of the activity is $250.00. Additional information can be found on the 2014 Ohio Wing Encampment webpage. You are also encouraged to "LIKE" the Ohio Wing Encampment Facebook page.

Every cadet that has not previously attended a basic encampment is encouraged to apply. This activity will take your skills to the next level and open many doors for you as a cadet. These opportunities include National Cadet Special Activities (NCSAs), the training framework required to become a successful CAP cadet officer, and many more. Encampment offers cadets experience in Leadership, Aerospace and United State Air Force demonstrations, Emergency Services and many other events that are strategically planned in this activity. The week of encampment is mentally and physically challenging; however the end result is virtually unmatched by any other activity in Civil Air Patrol.
